How Small Business Week got its start
In 1979, the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC) business centres in British Columbias Lower Fraser Valley pooled their resources to organize a week of activities for entrepreneurs.
Two years later, BDC decided to launch BDC Small Business WeekTM across Canada.
The initiative was quickly adopted by Canadas business community and BDC Small Business Week has become a not-to-be-missed annual event for entrepreneurs.
Here in Calgary, ATB has powered the SmallBusinessWeekCalgary.com platform for the last 4 years.
